Challenge

Over 100 women living in Rural areas struggle to provide for the family especially single mothers and widows . These women only depend on subsistence farming which is not sufficient to support their families. We hope to support them to create and operate their own small enterprises. Without assets and referrals, these women cannot obtain credit from banks.This project is supporting farming projects like piggery and poultry projects, it is also supporting women to make hand crafts

Solution

The project provides grants to boost the small enterprises to women groups to use to continue their own small business. It also facilitates quarterly book keeping training and support meetings with the beneficiaries.

Long-Term Impact

These women have undergone a business skills trainings that enabled them identify the kind of business each of them can do best and the ones they can do as a group, the training also touched on the areas of financial management and book keeping, these women were also trained on establishment & management of Village Savings and Loans Associations, we also facilitated the associations with tool kits (saving box and savings tracking books) as well as training to enable them run professionally
